Sight & Sound: the November 2012 issue

The best of Venice, Toronto and the upcoming London film festivals: Sightseers, Rust and Bone, Ginger and Rosa and On the Road.

In print and digital from 8 October.

“We wanted to do it as a sitcom, a bit like Terry and June, but with killing.”
—Steve Oram on Sightseers

Our November festival special issue brings you the best of Venice, Toronto and the upcoming London film festivals: Ben Walters explores the strain of “British bathetic bucolic” in Ben (Kill List) Wheatley’s cover black comedy Sightseers, Jacques Audiard talks about the mix of Marion Cotillard, sex, disability and orcas in his new drama Rust and Bone, Sally Potter revisits adolescent passions under the shadow of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis in Ginger and Rosa and Demetrios Matheou reports from the location shoot of Walter Salles’ Kerouac adaptation On the Road.

Plus a ‘Deep Focus’ on the dark side of Ealing Studios, David Thomson imagines an interview with Jack Nicholson’s mad Randy post-The Shining, Tony Rayns’ guide to Korean master Im Kwontaek, an interview with pure-cinema pioneer Peter Kubelka, New York’s radical renaissance man Aldo Tambellini, reviews of 34 new film releases and 23 DVDs, books on Nicholas Ray and Olivier Assayas, J. Hoberman’s take on 21st Century Cinema, and that last shot of The Searchers.
